Egerton Park
Egerton History
Egerton Park was given to the local community in the 19th century as a "thank you" to the mill workers for not striking whilst negotiating working conditions. It was used by many local groups for a range of recreational activities.

Walmsley Church AODS - A potted history
Egerton History
Walmsley Church AODS began life as Walmsley Sunday School Operatic Society with its first officially recorded meeting being January 9th, 1928. The opening minute records that it was… ”proposed and seconded that we keep the society together, working with the church as before”.

Life in Egerton during the 20s and 30s was very different from the present. The population of the area was a fraction of what it is today, and the social impact of the motor car was still on a limited scale. Audiences travelled to and from Egerton on buses, and it was even in the minutes of one meeting that the bus company was to be asked to double its services during show week!

Hall was home of Deakin family
Egerton History
In 1956, Egerton Hall was demolished. It was formerly home of the Deakin family of Egerton Dye Works, but was vacant from 1936 until 1940, when it was occupied by a section of the North London Homes for the Blind; they stayed until September, 1953, when the hall became empty again and was then bought by a contracting firm, for demolition purposes. 'The house had been built in about 1826 by Edmund Ashworth, JP, who had purchased the land from the Egerton Dye Works and who lived there until a year or so before his death in 1881.  He was succeeded in the tenancy of the hall by his son, who died 20 years later.

A history of the Ashworth family
Egerton History
The Ashworth family, who first came to Bolton to escape the Great Plague of London in 1665, worked a large farm at Birtenshaw, and were one of the first families to specialise in textile production in Bolton. John Ashworth (1696-1767) bought cotton in Liverpool and Manchester and sold, or gave it out on credit, to the local cottage spinners and weavers. He then bought back the finished cloth.


The soil and climate in Turton were poor for farming, so the switch to textiles manufacture was more rapid than in other areas. The Ashworths and neighbouring gentry became manufacturers, while the labourers and cottagers became domestic spinners and weavers. Henry Ashworth (1728-1790) shared in the local development of the cotton industry, while retaining his farming interests and also starting what was to become the family occupation of land and property agent. He had a warehouse in Bolton town centre, on the corner of Fold Street and Chancery Lane, and one in Manchester. He had an extensive business in the manufacture of a coarse durable fabric called Thick Sets Fustians and Jeans, using a linen warp called Hambro Yarn and a cotton weft. After the introduction of Arkwright's water-frame a cotton warp was used. It is believed that Henry once employed the inventor of the cotton spinning Mule, Samuel Crompton (1753-1827), and also Crompton's future wife. After Henry's death in 1790, his two sons John (1772-1855) and Edmund (1776-1856) continued the family business. John became a member of the Edgworth Quakers in 1793.

Cheetham's Close
Egerton History Early evidence of man in the Bolton area is shown by the Stone Circle on Chetham Close, Egerton.  The circle is 1050 feet above sea level and is thought to date from the early Bronze Age.

Low stumps are all that remains today after a farmer tenant of Turton Tower demolished the more or less perfect 51 feet circle with a sledgehammer.

History of The Egerton House Hotel
Egerton History
Egerton House has since Victorian times been a "Textile House" . Earlier it was a farm. Only the barn remains of the farm outbuildings. The centre of the house is the original building. In Victorian times it was extended to the south- the present front.

The house belonged to and was occupied by the Ashworth family, who owned the spinning and weaving mill across the road. Later, towards the end of the textile Trade, it was bought by the Deakin family. They continued to function in the bleaching and dyeing capacity until 1959 when the area became an Industrial Estate.

After the house was sold to the Deakin Family, a son of the Ashworth family married one of the Deakin's daughters. They occupied the house from 1902 until their deaths in the early 1960's. They had no children.
